Verkehrsverstöße, Bußgelder und Punkte – Verkehr in den VAE

 

Die VAE sind die  Heimat von Menschen unterschiedlichster Nationalität mit verschiedensten Fahrstilen – vom gemütlichen Sonntagsfahrer bis hin zum rücksichtslosen Raser. Was kaum jemand weiß ist, dass auch in den VAE defensives Fahrverhalten Pflicht  ist, wenn es von den meisten aber  definitiv nicht immer befolgt wird.

Allerdings können selbst kleinste Verkehrsverstöße hohe Bußgelder, Punkte (Black Points) und Fahrverbote nach sich ziehen.

Black Points

Bußgelder für Verkehrsverstöße werden in der Regel binnen 48 Stunden verhängt und die Nachricht per SMS umgehend übermittelt. Neben diesen Bußgeldern gibt es auch ein so genanntes „black points system“, welches zu einem rücksichtsvollen Fahrstil motivieren und schlechtes Fahrverhalten abstrafen soll.

Bußgelder und Black Points werden unter anderem verhängt wegen falschem Parken, rücksichtslosem Fahren, überhöhter Geschwindigkeit, Nichterneuerung der Fahrzeugregistrierung etc. Sobald die Gesamtsumme der Black Points 24 übersteigt, kann der Führerschein für 3, 6 oder 12 Monate entzogen werden.

Bußgelder und Black Points werden immer an den registrierten Fahrzeugbesitzer ausgestellt. Dieser kann die Punkte dann an den jeweiligen Fahrer des Fahrzeugs übertragen. Dies ist insbesondere bei Firmenwagen, Privatwagen und Mietwagen möglich, wenn nicht der Eigentümer, sondern der Fahrer die Verkehrsverletzung begangen hat.

Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitungen

Die Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitung ist der wohl am häufigsten begangene Verkehrsverstoß. Die erlaubten Geschwindigkeiten sind in der Regel ausgeschildert. Grundsätzlich gilt: innerorts: 60 bis 80 km/h und außerhalb der Orte oder auf Autobahnen 100 bis 120 km/h. In Wohngebieten kann die erlaubte Geschwindigkeit auch nur 40 km/h oder sogar 25 km/h betragen.

Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitungen können hohe Geldstrafen und Black Points nach sich ziehen. So wird zum Beispiel bei einer um mehr als 30 km/h überhöhten Geschwindigkeit ein Bußgeld von 600 AED verhängt. Bei einer Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitung von mehr als 40 km/h beträgt das Bußgeld 700 AED. Black Points werden in der Regel erst ab einer Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitung von über 50 km/h verhängt. Bei einer Geschwindigkeitsüberschreitung von mehr als 60km/h drohen beispielsweise ein Bußgeld von 1.000 AED, 12 Black Points und die Sicherstellung des Fahrzeugs für 30 Tage.
